David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland, Fla., massacre who has become a highly visible gun control activist, claims he has been the target of an assassination attempt seven times the past year.
Hogg, 19, told The Washington Post in an article published on Tuesday that the attempts to end his life came from people who are "misguided and misinformed of what were actually here to talk about."
He said that if someone were to kill him because of his efforts to curb gun violence, it would most likely be "the stupidest thing they could do to try to end the movement. Because that would make it even more successful in the end. Because it would invigorate us and create f---ing change."
Hogg survived the mass shooting that unfolded at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February 2018, leaving 17 people dead. In the aftermath, he founded "Never Again MSD," a student-led gun control advocacy group, along with other prominent student leaders.
The 19-year-old, who plans to attend Harvard this fall, recognized that Parkland students quickly started a larger conversation about school shootings and said it's "because were not vulnerable."

Your Pop Tart getting caught in the toaster is not an assassination attempt.
He wasn’t a survivor because he wasn’t even at the school during the shooting.
put on your hip boots.
In his scrawny ass dreams.
He needs to coordinate his story with Smollett.
Police reports please ..
Seven people tried and failed to kill this freak because he’s got what, amazing ninja skills?
Yeah, he’s lying...again.
He’s not worth the bullet.
Honestly, he’d likely be dead already if true.
I guess he’d better start carrying a gun.
7 times? and they all failed? BS.
My goodness, President Hogg just can’t keep himself out of the spotlight, can he?
(or rather, the ones, who are carefully grooming and anointing him for political life, a-là Justin Trudeau, don’t want him to BE out of the spotlight for more than a few weeks at a time)
That’s 6 more than JFK.
This guy’s more important than I thought.
Youre 15 minutes is up girley-boy, time to find something else to make all about you
if there was an attempt they obviously SUCK!
Role playing video games don’t count.
That is pure equine feces! If seven supposed assassins failed, his OPSEC is better than the average special ops soldier - and I kinda doubt that...
Getting drenched in a water pistol fight with your “swishy” buddy isn’t an assassination attempt.
